  1. It would be kind of cool to try raising the world height limits. Obviously, some plugins may have issues with it, but for science, let's assume it is a server without any plugins. How would we raise the height limit from 256 to 1024? Would it even be possible without client mods?
     
  2. you would just need to change the size of the chunk sections
     
    • Like Like x 1
    • Creative Creative x 1
  3. Huh. Chunk sections... can you provide some more details please?
     
    • Winner Winner x 1
  4. I wish I could correct you, but you are right. Making this change would require client mods, and so it is infeasible.
     
  5. This would not work for a large number of reasons.

    The MCE file format would need to be modified, so would a lot of math that assumes the height limit is 256, anything that uses a byte to represent height would break, the client cant even make sense of a chunk with a different format..
